    Hi;

    I'm coding in C and I'm using the CreateFile function inside of Windows API which is:
    HANDLE WINAPI CreateFile(
    __in LPCTSTR lpFileName,
    __in DWORD dwDesiredAccess,
    __in DWORD dwShareMode,
    __in_opt LPSECURITY_ATTRIBUTES lpSecurityAttributes,
    __in DWORD dwCreationDisposition,
    __in DWORD dwFlagsAndAttributes,
    __in_opt HANDLE hTemplateFile
    );
    In the first argument, lpFieName will NOT accept a 'normal' character array.

    I've tried numerous methods to convert the string, and I've used CreateFileA for ANSI compilation, however they both do NOT work.

    Any suggestions?
